• The UK to become the first country in the world to introduce a carbon price floor for the power sector.

• New “green investment bank“, to start operating next year, will have access to £3bn of funds.

• Climate change levy discount on electricity for those signing up to climate change agreements will rise from 65% to 80% from April 2013.
